I have all the CC games to date and been playing these on and off for years. Recently, a friend has asked me whether I want to play H2H via serial link either CC2,3,4 and/or 5. I'd love to but the problem I have is my laptops - I have an old Sony Vaio running windows 7 and a new MSI with windows 10. I know from reading through various posts that windows 7 and 10 pose problems.
Having perused through the forums, i'm coming to the conclusion that my best bet is to acquire an old laptop which I can pick up for c£50, which isn't a problem. My question is, what sort of spec would I require, Windows XP? and I assume the onboard graphics would suit.

On Windows 7 you can use Windows XP mode- virtual machine, old CCs works good in it. Assuming you have a Professional edition of Windows and CPU with HW assisted virtualization. Otherwise, you can always use virtual machine software like VMware Workstation or Parallels Desktop on modern PC to create such a VM with WinXP and run CCs inside of it, including Internet access for H2H. For such path, you will need legal WinXP disk&key and spent some about 40 USD for VM software, CPU with HW assisted virtualization is welcome too.
